Bernie might get a few extra votes this Tuesday in the Illinois primary.

His Campaign is running ads that are critical of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Rahm is the former White House Chief of Staff for Obama.

Bernie is trying to tie Rahm's Chicago problems to Hillary and Bill Clinton's 1994 crime bill.

Might be working.

Blacks are mad at Rahm for several reasons that should be easy for Bernie to cash in on.

Hope nobody gets a bad case of Chicago "gunarrhea" or "crimmydia".



If Bernie Sanders gets his way, Tuesday's Illinois primary will turn into a referendum on embattled Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

The Vermont senator’s campaign has begun unleashing stinging attacks on the former Bill Clinton and Barack Obama White House aide — who has become a lightning rod for criticism from African-Americans and progressives in his two terms in City Hall — with the aim of painting him as a close political ally of Hillary Clinton.

Top campaign surrogates have been dispatched to Chicago, and Sanders is running two separate television ads critical of Emanuel in an attempt to highlight Clinton’s connections with the mayor.

He might get a few votes in his rant against Trump as well:


When Bernie lists the causes of protests at the rallies and the violence hyped up by the media, he fails to mention the fact that it's his and Shillary's supporters that are instigating the confrontations.

Sander's critical ads of Emanuel might prod Chicago voters seeking true change instead of promises made by Clinton.

That's the excuse of an abuser. You made me hit you. The protesters have a right to protest. This is America after all.
They should be able to do so peacefully and not be worried about getting sucker punched or thrown to the ground.

Of course, he completely excuses that actions of his own supporters in shutting down the rally entirely.

That's going to go over well with people. Is this what we can expect of a Bernie who runs against someone in the general? That his supporters will mob his opponents' rallies and campaign stops and actively seek to prevent a campaign?

And its ironic that he doesn't see how condoning those behaviors as he does won't help the division in any way ... they'll only deepen it.

So I guess if we're looking for the Great Uniter we know it won't be Bernie either. He encourages mob violence to enforce his opinion.

That's some hyperbole. Bernie has never encouraged violence - he did just the opposite when he said Trump needed to quit talking about punching or roughing up people who speak out against him. I notice that Bernie doesn't send his "mob" to disrupt his biggest opponent at the moment - Hillary Clinton.

He wasn't condoning the violence at the rally - he was explaining it.
